When I was a kid, one of my very faveorite action figure lines were the Aliens figures (back when R-rated movies had lots of advertising for children) these figure were paired up with a Dark Horse comic book which featured the particular kind of alien you had just purchased doing generally creepy things and causing trouble for the marines with a payroll that doesn’t include exterminating Xenomorph infestations. Anyways, I just recently discovered that these action figures were also going to be part of a saturday-morning cartoon show entitled “Operation: Aliens”. The show didn’t seem to make it to television but it wasn’t axed before scenes were animated and the marketing machine had begun to roll.
